Can a bad tensioner cause an engine to overheat?


A bad tensioner can cause an engine to overheat in the sense that when a bad tensioner breaks, it will cause a loss of turning movement to all the accessories of the engine including the water pump, and when the water pump stops turning, the flow of coolant will stop and the engine will start to overheat.

Turn the a/c on and the car overheats


Might be cooling fan clutch or the electric fan could be broken, the engine-cooling fan moves air through the radiator when your car is stationary or traveling at a slow speed, this air removes the heat from the coolant created by the engine, using the radiator as a conductor. When the cooling fan no longer works it causes the coolant to overheat which causes the engine to overheat. Also check the radiator, when the AC is turned on, the heat released from the condenser located in front of the radiator reduces the radiator's ability to remove the heat and the engine starts to overheat.

I have a mazda 626 and it overheat on me and also my timing belt is lose can a timing belt cause a car to overheat and shut down


as the timing belt usually turns the water pump yes it is possible. i am not sure what motor you have in this but i would think you ar elooking at your serpintine belt as your timing belt is behind plastic covers and is not visable. maybe your serpintine belt runs the water pump and as it is loose then it will not spin the water pump causing it to overheat

Compresser overheat triping


Hi!!

It could be a few things that make the compressor overheat, when this happens, the bimetal thermal protector shuts it off to avoid damage to the unit.

Some of the reasons could be:
Dirty condenser and/or evaporator (if condenser is dirty or clogged up, the heat absorbed by the evaporator will not be dissipated, this will cause the compressor to overheat.)
Bad fan motor.(not blowing enough air to cool down condenser).
Bad capacitor (only if compressor fails to start right up or not at all.)
Worn coils inside compressor.
System clogged or dirty. (If the system is dirty or clogged up, the compressor's workload increases causing it to overheat.

Don't forget to rate this post, Good Luck!!

Car is running hot (temp gauge rises above normal)


Try the overflow tank cap. The seal will go bad and not hold the psi causing the water to flow out this is something you will not always see which will cause the engine to overheat or temp gauge to rise. Also the thermostat could be sticking and cause the temp gauge to rise. Are the fans turning on when the temp gets high? If so then I would resort to the above first. If the fans are not coming on, the relay or fan/s could be the problem.

Overheats ive tried the obvious solutions and it still overheats any suggestions


note if it overheats on the freeway or in city driving. If it overheats soon after you leave the house then in has to be the thermostat. If it overheats at city driving where there are lots of stop and go driving or while you are parked with the motor running, then check the radiator fan function properly. If it takes a while to overheat and tend to do it when driving on the freeway, it is a clogged/dirty radiator. If it looses coolant due to a leak, then it will also overheat. The least likely cause which don't even pertain to newer car is a retarted timing. A retarted timing causes a car to loose noticable loose of power accompanied by overheating. A retartded timing is usually common in older car where timing is adjustable by turning the distributor. Your car is exempt from this.

Overheating


  1. There are many different reasons that can cause an engine overheat, but they all have in common three aspects. The three aspects which all engine overheat factors have in common are that they cause that the heating system can not get rid of heat, they cause a loss of coolant or they directly cause too much heat in the engine.
  2. One first problem which might be the cause of an engine overheat is a problem with the radiator cap and the pressure it holds. If the radiator cap does not hold pressure correctly then coolant could boil and therefore the engine would overheat. Another reason might be caused by thermostat failures; it is recommendable that you check it.
  3. The car engine might also overheat due to coolant leaks such as those from the radiator, the hoses, the water pump, the freeze plugs or any others. Also, problems in the water pump could be the cause and therefore you should check it and replace it in case it is needed.
  4. Some other reasons by which the car engine could overheat are problems in the exhaust system which you can discover by checking vacuum readings, pipes and converter. Besides, you should also make sure that the radiator hose has not collapsed and the ignition timing is working properly.
  5. You should also check the electric cooling fan by making sure that the fan motor, the relay and temperature are correct or otherwise it could cause the engine to overheat. Besides this, you should also check the radiator in case there are any debris in it as well as you should check its hose in case it has collapsed.
  6. It is also recommendable that you check the antifreeze concentration which should be 50/50 in order to be correct, otherwise it could cause the car engine to overheat. If you do not find why your engine does overheat, you should ask a mechanic or an expert for advice. You should not try to fix this if you do not have the proper tools and general car knowledge necessary for it.
